      Just had Sky+ box replaced....

      Have been having problems with my Sky+ box for the last few weeks and finally lost my patience and called Sky over the weekend. Basically box kept stalling, failing to record, losing signal, etc. Sky have tested the dish, signal, etc and have just replaced the box. It was a Amstrad box which I have never really been happy with (also have an old Pace box upstairs which is excellent) as too slow, etc.. Anyway they have replaced it with a refurbed Thomson box. I assume this is a better make. It seems much quicker. Only question is will the picture quality be just an good. I have just had a new LCD TV and I have been paranoid about the picture quality. I am almost certain there is no difference in picture quality but theres just a niggling feeling at the back of my mind that it 'may' be worse than before. Can anyone rest my mind?

      It should be exactly the same, providing the picture settings have been set correctly.
      Services,4,1, make sure video output is set to RGB.

      earlier this year my Thomson Sky+ box failed and I had to get it replaced I got a refurbed Amstrad box!! The Thomson box went back to be refurbed. Anyway the picture quality to me seems to be as good now as before.
